Scrivens sees his position as a goaltender for the Edmonton Oilers as an opportunity and an obligation to do more. So he is lending his name and his mask to raise awareness and funds for mental health in general, and the Schizophrenia Society of Alberta in particular.Scrivens has started Ben's Netminders, a program that will turn his mask into a canvas for four Edmonton-area artists diagnosed with schizophrenia. Scrivens is raising awareness by wearing the first mask, based on a painting by Richard Boulet. The fundraising will come when the game-worn masks are put up for auction, but more important is giving a voice to those who often are marginalized.
The mask is created in a horror style with lots of scary effects… and among them you will find all the classic monsters from our history… Can you find them all? Beware…. there is Frankenstein´s monster, zombies, the Loch Ness monster, Dracula, The Mummy, Bigfoot, werewolves, Medusa…. It is truly the Monsters Hall Of Fame….
